MESSAGE FROM MED HELP

The nasty remarks will stop NOW!  

In addition, please stop using up a "question" for comments.  The doctor only sees and replies to questions.  Because the doctor's time is limited, we have to limit the number of new questions we allow each day.  When you guys use up a question "slot" for your opinions & comments, you've taken away the chance for a person with a question to get help.

Well, thanks for your response.  I used up a "question" to get some comments only after it became apparent that no one from MedHelp was going to step in to do something otherwise (AND, if you read far enough, with the EXPLICIT disclaimer that anyone with a REAL NEED could GLADLY step in and take precedence).

And as far as the doctor's time being limited. . .well, as far as that's concerned, mine is too, at least as far as how much time it takes to wade through the childish insults to get to some real answers.  Even if they ARE doctor's, their time is no more valuable than mine or any other addict's here.

Lastly, if the questions are indeed limited (and I know they are), maybe a little more scrutiny could go towards screening out duplicate question posts such as the two identical "ESH" threads that went up yesterday.  I'm sure it was through no fault of the poster, but letting that slip by took just as much space away -- 50%, by my calculations -- as did my question today.  Thanks for your concern.

Peace,

Kurt

Thanks you for stepping in. I am brand new to this forum and in dire need of it. I am trying to stop using even for 1 day and I literally looked at the thread and had a massive anxiety attack when all I saw was mindless bickering and no help[ful words at all. You dont realize that this is life or death and to see people fighting andf not focussed on recovery is deadly.

I need help. I feel like I cant stop. I have been using 8 mos this time. I have stopped 8 mos and 6 mos in the past 4 years but it has gotten harder. What do I do?

I had to read this forum for several months before I would post a ques. or comment be it b/c I thought it might be stupid in someone elses mind then the times I wanted to be supportive and affraid the info I gave back was going to be ripped apart B/c I wasn't educated enough. Everyone here has been helpful in the past but until that guy leaves I will not post anymore, I don't need anyone analizeing or whatever his insecurities are to lay into me. I think everyone here should not respond to his comments anymore. Just a thought TER

I would like to email personally. Please let me know your email. I promise I just want to talk but not in public yet. Im new to this.

I strongly second that.  Anyone can say who was involved and this and that.  But, the bottom line is someone came here with the sole purpose of stirring it up and did an outstanding job of doing that.  After what he has posted, I can't see how anyone can give him the time of day.

It's easy to change identities on this forum, but spammers and cranks can't change their agendas, most of which involve the disruption of the forum dialogue.

cosmicstargoat has proven to be a waste of our time and, more to the point, a waste of forum thread space.

Thus far, we've given him what he wants: a chance to disrupt the forum, dominate the threads, and serve his own vanity by posting what he undoubtedly considers to be witty retorts. In reality, the content of his posts is tactless, mundane and puerile.

I will no longer read or respond to his posts. I suggest everyone do the same.

I am puzzled as to why you would come in now with this low blow, hours after everyone had already worked everything out.  I have made my peace with everyone, except perhaps Mr. Michaels and now it is all for naught.

Kurt, Thomas was the one who told me to stand up for myself.  Live and learn.

I remember your story now with H. I hope someone here can help you. I don't have any info or know anything about it.
Just keep trying, you will make it and be free. Try MMT, anything you can. You can do it. You can get free of its grips. Many have gone before you...YOU CAN DO IT TOO!!!

Good Luck, I will be keeping you in my thoughts,

Who is KURT? And why did he tell you to stand up to the forum regulars?

Just to add another line of support to all of you people out there that take the time to reply to the questions.  I know how dire this board became to me in the time that I was admitting that I had a problem, wanting to quit, getting the inpatient help that I needed and, lastly, staying "almost" clean for two months with just a two day spread of "using" pain meds because of a nerve in my face flaring up.  I come here every day to remember why I became clean, the living hell that I went through to get clean and motivation to live one more day clean.  This is by far the hardest thing I have ever done in my life and continues to be a fighting struggle.  Without this board and just lurking every day~  I wouldn't be where I am.  Thanks to all of you out there that share your time and experience with all of us.
I know that I have never posted my story before, maybe some time I can find a place where it will "fit in" and help someone else.  But if any of you are interested, I will be happy to tell it.  My email is ***@****.  FYI, COD is lortab 10's/ 20-25 a day for 7 months~
Have a Great Day All~

Sounds like they are people that used to post and decided to come back and change their suedos so they could strt messing around with the forum again.
Especiallly with Michael and Thomas03.
They KNOW way too much to be newbies or lurkers.
Don't think we can't spot that stuff a mile away guys and GALS.

No, Thomas told me to and I guess I went overboard.  Anyway, Thomas apparently failed to read ANY of the messages today as I essentially stopped being an ******* yesterday.  Kurt Kobain is the one who asked me.

I'm so sorry that Thomas wasn't hanging around his computer and refreshing it every couple of minutes, to see if you had posted today.  He was a little tied up looking in my drawers. I guess he found he found them a lot more interesting than he does you.

Also, he said stand up for yourself, he did NOT say change your nickname, come back into the forum, and start flaming all it's posters on every thread you could find open to post on. BIG, BIG difference between the two.

---------

Cindy, I don't post a lot in here, but I do read every thread daily and help out those I feel I can.  PLEASE ban this goat guy before he does any more damange and ties up more threads as soon as they are started in the mornings.  Thank you so much. I'm doing more scrolling in here than reading the past couple of days because of his disruptive behavior.  He's better off going to usenet groups where he can find others such as himself who get off on flame wars.

I know for a fact I am not the only one who feels this way.  And, that is from people that haven't even posted yet.  So, I don't know why I have been singled out.  And, yes, you went way too far.  That is the understatement of the year.
Avatar universal
Oh, and Thomas was named as well.  I know if there was a vote to ban cosmicstargoat, it would be unanimous......an absolute landslide.  He has managed to get everything all jammed up here for two days now.  One hell of a contribution, I must say.
Avatar universal
No, here is the way it was.

1.  Thomas told me
2.  Kurt asked who told me

You know, for one who claims to want to stop this, you sure have a way to keep it going.  Scroll up and look at how many messages you have written in this thread, re: csg

You are always singled out brother. Some people just like to push your buttons, as for me I lost it and I did keep this **** going. Goatman knew it and kept it coming until Cindy said she had enough of it! I know better than most my shortfalls and letting people get to me is one of my major flaws but I have to be honest Goatman deserved everything I said, I just should have said it in one post. I took up space too. I hope anyone here reailizes I was just taking up for this forum, the one that saved my life 10 months ago along with the life long friends I have made here.
I am sorry if I offended anyone last night or today. I for one will just ignore such **** if it shows it's ugly head. Peace to everyone! Bill
